Why is it a problem? Income disparity is natural, some people are losers who will turn every victory into a failure somehow. Some people work hard and make more money, other people sit around crying about it online. We all pay taxes and I already pay more than my fair share, my obligations to other peoples finances end there. You want a fair shake in life? Work for it, no one owes you anything. Global revolt? Don't make me laugh, people sit around whining about a netflix price increase like its the apocalypse. They're too apathetic to ever take action and most of them are too damned fat and lazy too. Things are going to continue as is because that's exactly what people want.

Yeah, but the problem is you and I are paying ours and they're not paying theirs. They're gaming the system so everything goes their way and we keep losing and losing more. No one thinks Revolutions will ever happen, until they happen. What do you think Occupy was? Not a full blown Revolution, no, but a strong indicator of where things are headed. As things get worse, people get angrier. And then react. And it's usually a very bad, very violent reaction. We're not talking about the philosophy of economics here, were' talking about real life and real problems. And the ridiculous thing is it's all very avoidable in the first place.

I can't lie, I am a bit selfish. It's part of the reason I knew I shouldn't get married. But even if I had Bill Gates level wealth, I wouldn't spend $20M on a stamp. Although, thinking about it, I'd be tempted just to annoy people who think like you. Yes, some people can not afford to purchase a house. But how you got from there to it's because of people who spend $20M on a stamp, I have no clue. Unless you are claiming anyone who isn't disposing of all unnecessary income to charity is stomping on the population of the world. But seeing as whomever buys that stamp is probably spending a lower percentage of their wealth on it than you would on a PC... not sure where that leaves things.

Not giving it all away, but just paying their fair share like everyone else - which they don't. And not gaming the system to ensure things keep flowing up to them while it gets worse for the rest of us. Just a fair fucking shake is not a lot to ask. In fact, it's in their best interest that should happen because we all know what the end result is when things get too far out of whack between the elites and the masses - French Revolution, Red October, Cuba, etc. etc. etc.

Here's a great article on the subject....

The Inclusive Capitalism Initiative is Trojan Horse to quell coming global revolt

And this is beautiful. Rather than actually make things better for everyone, they're discussing how to create PR campaigns so it appears that things are getting better for everyone, when in fact they're getting worse. Their greed is mind boggling....

"Leading financiers referred to statistics on rising global inequalities and the role of banks and corporations in marginalising the majority while accelerating systemic financial risk – vindicating the need for change.

While the self-reflective recognition by global capitalism’s leaders that business-as-usual cannot continue is welcome, sadly the event represented less a meaningful shift of direction than a barely transparent effort to rehabilitate a parasitical economic system on the brink of facing a global uprising.

Central to the proceedings was an undercurrent of elite fear that the increasing disenfranchisement of the vast majority of the planetary population under decades of capitalist business-as-usual could well be its own undoing.

The Conference on Inclusive Capitalism is the brainchild of the Henry Jackson Society (HJS), a little-known but influential British think tank with distinctly neoconservative and xenophobic leanings. In May 2012, HJS executive director Alan Mendoza explained the thinking behind the project:

“… we felt that such was public disgust with the system, there was a very real danger that politicians could seek to remedy the situation by legislating capitalism out of business.”

I know, right? What were those uppity black folks back in the '60s THINKING? All those marches and rallies and riots did nothing to further their cause! If only they'd gently nudged.

And look at all the violence that ensued during that period. That's precisely my point. The government had to call out the fucking national guard in several states just to keep order. That's the end result of trying to force people into things they don't agree with. And what do you have today? Still a heavily fractured melting pot that doesn't melt. Multiculturalism doesn't work. And men and women are not equals. That doesn't mean one is inherently better than the other, it just means they're not equals. All the feel good PC liberalism is just so much Disneyfied bullshit. Walt Disney knew it was all bullshit, but it would sell. Do you honestly believe the ditch diggers of the world are just as important to humanity as someone like Stephen Hawking?

I sure hope so, but given how Witcher really has people split into the love it or don't really like it groups I definitely won't be getting my hopes up. Never cared for the Witcher games so we'll see.

Hey, at least the rich just spend their money now instead of using slave labor to build pyramids. Remember Cutter, you are probably richer than a vast majority of the world population, look how you spend your money. On computers and games! Hang the rich!


It's all relative to being rich and poor in any country of your choosing. What isn't is when most people can't afford the things that were commonly accepted because our ancestors worked so hard to get them. We've been losing ground since/because of Reagan/Thatcher/Mulroney. Most people should be able to afford a house - not be forever indebted to the banks for one. Most people should be able to afford to live in a decent neighborhood and eat decent food. However that's not the case because some people have 20 million dollars to blow on a fucking stamp. If you don't see anything wrong with that then you've just as selfish as the prick who'd pay 20 million dollars for a tiny piece of coloured paper with some glue on it.

Armchair feminist blames men for all the woes of women in the world. What a surprise. I used to date a girl for about 2 years who was a stripper. And through her I dated quite a few of them during that period. The vast majority - that I knew at any rate - weren't fucked up, exploited, sex objects. They were pretty smart, savy, businesswomen.

My ex realized she could make $500 a week as a waitress - 20 years ago - or upwards of $5,000 a week taking off her clothes. In 3 months she made enough to cover her entire university tuition and living expenses for the next 4 years. Another 3 months netted her a really nice trip around the world. Several I knew used the bank they made to start their own small businesses. Many of them made professional contacts which gave them other advantages. Meanwhile guys are in there paying 2 - 3 times more for a drink than a regular bar, and $10 for 3 minutes of a girl's time for a dance. So who's really exploited here? How many men have been taken to the cleaners by gold diggers?

And maybe, just maybe the reason we objectify women is the EXACT same reason they do the EXACT same thing themselves, and that's because it's hardwired to the fucking genes! It's why sex preoccupies the majority of thinking for BOTH genders ALL DAY LONG. I was raised by women. Smart, educated, self-empowered women. So when I'm checking a chick out, it's not because I was raised by some misogynistic assholes, it's simply the natural thing my genetic sequencing programmed me to do. I like looking at hot chicks. And I like having sex with them even more. If that makes me a monster than fuck it, I'll happily be that.

Holy blue flaming Jesus on a pogo stick! This PC bullshit has to cease because all it's doing is creating a reactionary backlash. It's one thing to politely nudge people along to a better world. It's another thing to get all hardcore militant, insult people and pick fights with them simply because they don't share your point of view.
You catch more flies with honey, as the old adage goes.

Do you yourself a favor and put Beamer on ignore. He's nothing but a troll. Haven't you noticed by now that all he does is play the contrarian to get a rise out of people? See how he shifts the conversation to draw other people in? Classic troll.

Multiplayer? Why? To what end? DXHR already dumbed down the game enough with its linear paths and approaches to the game. While DXHR wasn't bad, it really didn't imppress me either. And after the debacle that was Thief I won't be touching this for a long time, if ever.

Lets see.... 46,000,000 / 268 people… is about 170k per person. So 2 maybe 3 years of salary to make the game....give or take a bit.


Not even close to that when you consider all the overhead. 3 offices and all the equipment plus monthly costs? I'd be surprised if most of them were making 50k. Still it just seems like way too many people for a space game.
